      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31).

Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl & mix well to combine, set aside.
    ***Creaming butter & sugar in the Thermomix - blend the sugar 10-20 seconds on speed 9 ( I did 10 secs for caster sugar),
    Add butter to bowl and chop 5 seconds speed 8. Insert butterfly & whip for up to 2 minutes speed 3-4. NEVER go past speed 4 with the butterfly in use or it will break. ***
    ***If your butter is hard, add to the Thermoix for one minute/37 degrees/ soft stir ***

    2. Cream the butter & sugar until light & fluffy.
    3. REMOVE BUTTERFLY & the add cream cheese & vanilla. Beat until smooth - approx. 1 1/2 - 2 minutes speed 3.5
    4. Add the eggs, one by one through the MC hole in lid. Waiting a few seconds inbetween adding the next egg.

Accessories you need



Always trust your own oven when baking as they are all different. Mine cooks fast so I reduce the temp & lessen the cook time by about 15 minutes.
